Homework

English

Year 6 pupils have access to an English website which is called www.spag.com. 

spag.com provides KS1 and KS2 practice punctuation & grammar tests. Plus 80 additional tests covering grammar objectives for every year group

Each week, children will be set homework through this website which they must complete by the following Tuesday.

The children have all be given their log in details but we will happily provide children with them again should they have lost them.

If your child is struggling to access the site at home for any reason, please let us know and we will allocate time in school for them to complete their homework.

Maths

As a school, we have a subscription to a website called Times Table Rockstars. The website address is www.ttrockstars.com 

This format has very successfully boosted times tables recall speed for hundreds of thousands of pupils over the last 8 years in over 12,000 schools – both primary and secondary – worldwide.

Children really enjoy using this website in school as it helps them to learn and recall their times tables quickly which is an invaluable skill. The programme is also available as an app.

We encourage children to practise their times tables on a daily basis to help improve their fluency and speed.

If your child is struggling to access the site at home for any reason, please let us know and we will allocate time in school for them to complete their homework.

 

Art

We have begun our topic studying great artists through history. We completed a challenge to find out what we knew at the start of our topic. We had to match up different artists with a brief description of them as well as an example of their work. As we progress into our unit of work, we will revisit the children’s ideas to see if they were correct or not.

Prodigal Son

Year 6 acted out the Prodigal Son after studying the story in Come and See. A lot of our discussion was based around forgiveness and how we can ask God to help us forgive others.
